We did not book this hotel for the comfort or the food so we were not disappointed when we had to change the room because of the smell or because the dinner was really average, but luck of choice made us eat something from the plate. BUT... the view... OMG! It is worth every cent and the descent early in... More

Officially rated 3-stars, but we feel it deserves more. Impeccable service from check-in to departure. Though a tad pricy, the room include dinners and breakfasts. The hotel's unique offerings include an unbeatable view of the Alps and an undisturbed night sky for fans of stargazing. Pros - Great for stargazing - Breakfast and dinner catered for by hotel - Great... More

Nearly a 5 hour train ride up all the way from Geneva to Gornergrat but very worthwhile. Kulmhotel is a modest but very cosy place to stay. Staff have been so friendly and approachable. It is a 3 star hotel but made us feel 5 star. Service was impeccable and rooms very clean and comfortable. What surprised us was that... More

What an amazing location and top rate food service. Being at the top when the crowds go away and it is just the sunset, followed by the starts and mountains takes your breath away. Only thing I wished they had done would be to open the observatory to guests to enjoy the stars up close. That would make this a... More

I spent three nights for the opening ski season and my birthday. This was my third time across 10 years. I have never stayed in a hotel more than twice as I get easily bored... Let's clarify few points: The property is at over 3000mt! Usually one would not find a hotel with private toilet, shower, half board included, 4... More

First trip to Swiss. There was no clear direction to hotel from the train station at web site and the hotel has very small front desk. A laddy at front desk killed all my good impression. I traveled lots of countries and stayed at lots of hotels. This front desk service is world worst in my experience. Except that experience,... More

This hotel is all about location. If you want to look out your window and see the Matterhorn, no other hotel will do. The staff throughout could not be nicer or more accommodating. We were only there for about 18 hours and did limited hiking, but the views at night and first thing in the morning were worth the extra... More

Extraordinary hotel miles up in the Alps. The views of the Matterhorn at sunrise were extraordinary. Great staff. Food good. Bedrooms really special. Well worth the trouble to get there. You cannot drive to Zermatt, let alone this hotel, but the train journey is a great part of the trip.
